These are two different practices - neither IS meditation - but they are sitting practices too meditation.

 

In mindfulness meditation practice one’s tendency (and the general tendency in all practice of this sort) is awareness forward of the center of the head.

 

In loving kindness meditation one naturally moves to a less forward in the head position.
